Cucumber and Heirloom Tomato Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette

Yes, another blackberry recipe, though I think this is one of the last for the season. I also had the opportunity to use one of my other seasonal favorites, heirloom tomatoes. This salad is so simple it almost seems silly to post, but it was really tasty.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup blackberries
2 tbsp diced sweet  onions
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp raw sugar
2 or 3 heirloom tomatoes sliced
6″ of an English cucumber sliced (I like them peeled)
Spinach (I used as an accent but you could use more)

In a blender or processor puree 1/2 cup blackberries, onions, vinegar and sugar. Use half the dressing on the bottom of the platter. Arrange the tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach and remaining blackberries.Drizzle the rest of the dressing on top. Enjoy!
